Baby It’s Cold Outside!

It sure is cold here in Canada!  Right now it’s –33C with the wind chill factor…..a perfect day to stay in and make cards while sipping a nice steaming cup of tea!  For my card I used a Kraftin’ Kimmie rubber stamp and this sexy girl is called “Eva”.


I never look like that while I’m shoveling snow…lol!  The challenge for the Kraftin’ Kimmie party on Facebook was the sketch and the twist was to distress your card.  The beautiful designer paper is by Fancy Pants and the pad is called Winterland.  I distressed the papers using Tattered Rose distress ink by Tim Holtz. The snowflake is a Magnolia Doohickey die. Ribbon and pearls are by Crafts.  I colored the image with Copics.

Have a great day and keep warm!
